Default Promenade Stateroom

I just booked a Promenade Stateroom on the Freedom, does anyone have an opinion of these types of rooms?

Congrats on booking Freedom. I'm very much looking forward to sailing her in September. My only advice/comment about this type of cabin would be to be sure you keep the curtains drawn when dressing/undressing. You can see in as well as out. I think it would fun to be able to watch all the goings on in the Promenade, but wouldn't want anyone watching me, . BTW, when are you sailing?

I had booked a prom and a balcony across the hall. Thinking I could save some money. (family of 4) But I love the bal and changed it to 2 adjoining bal. I thought it would be great to have a prom room. I love to people watch. Let us know how you like it please.

My wife and I traveled in a promenade cabin on Explorer. We liked it. You could people-watch rather well from the cabin. It gave us a birds-eye view of the parades. While we might not book one again, it is only because we enjoyed the outside balcony as much as we did. Given the choice between a promenade cabin and no cruise, we'd happily take the former without any concerns.

We booked a promenade state room on the Navigator and we really enjoyed it. We are sailing on the Adventure in August and we booked a balcony room this time around. Have a great time on your cruise.

I loved mine. One of the few things I actually liked about Mariner of the Seas.

thanks everyone, it sounds like this room will give a new and unique perspective of the ship.

Hoosier Daddy, I like your name, so you , having a since of humor will understand the yellosno tag. I have been fortunate to have skiied all over North America and some in Europe, so being obsessed with snow for 30yrs. the name seemed appropriate. I spend more spare time cruising now than skiing, so maybe I should change the name?

i had a promenade room and it was pretty neat to be able to see whats going on below you, if you go to sleep early--i wouldn't reccommend it thought because there is loud music, but not past...about 10:00 or 11:00.

Hey Fern, I have the ability to turn a little snow yellow, but the ocean? Man, I can't even brag that much, but thanks for lifting my ego.

I had a Promenade Stateroom on Explorer of the Seas, my 1st RCCL cruise. We loved the room and like others said, was a great room for watching the parades, people, etc. The bay window was a nice touch from a standard inside stateroom as well.
